The School of Continuing Studies offices are housed at the Regional Training and Development Complex (RTDC) located on Tyler Junior College’s West Campus. The 84,000 square foot RTDC facility offers on-site registration and fee collection, convenient parking and a 300-seat conference room.The West Campus also houses the Skills Training Center, an innovative, joint project with Tyler Independent School District. The 75,000 square foot Skills Training Center is home to the College’s automotive technology and welding technology departments. The center and its departments are utilized by area high school students taking part in concurrent enrollment programs, offering the opportunity for college credit prior to high school graduation. Many of the students continue their studies after graduating, obtaining certification in technical fields to enter into the expanding job market.
Occupying 24,000 sq. ft. of the Skills Training Center on the TJC west campus, Luminant Academy’s $1.7 million investment offers classrooms, laboratories and simulators for the company’s power plant operations. This dynamic partnership not only benefits TJC and Luminant, but the city of Tyler as well. The partnership between TJC and Luminant signed a long-term contract of 8-10 years, and both are looking forward to a long and beneficial venture.
